Multiple Sensitivity? Chronic Pain? Read This.

I have just written a very long post on the TrulyGlutenFree blog about multiple sensitivity and chronic pain, and whether it could be central sensitivity syndrome. Have you heard of it?

It’s basically where someone suffering from any pain or sensitivity to stuff has neurotransmitters that have gone awry and their pain and perceived threat level has been turned up far too high. Fascinating stuff and may just be the answer for some of us with multiple sensitivity or chronic pain. Here is a quick list of which illnesses are known to be CSS conditions now (even if your GP has never heard of it!):

  • Fibromyalgia syndrome (FM)

  • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS)

  • Multiple chemical sensitivity (MCS)

  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)

  • Migraines

  • Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

  • Frequent Tension Type Headaches (TT)

  • Premenstrual Syndroms (PMS)

  • Food Intolerance

  • Stimuli Hypersensitivity

  • Depression

  • Interstitial Cystitis

  • Vulvodynia

  • TMJ (temperomandibular joint)

  • Dental pain

  • Visceral pain

Eye-opening, huh?

Do go and have a read – there is a lot of personal info on there because most people on there know I am suffering myself so I’ve used me as a case study; please forgive me that!

I hope it helps you. I shall be adding it onto a new Chronic Pain page on the Purehealth site in a bit too. Sit comfortably and I’ll begin…

Is It Central Sensitivity Syndrome?
